Midnight Madness #21

I made this card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #21. Check out the details at: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ I have been following the blog for a while now, but hadn't got a chance to play yet. What incredible fun this was to create a really unique card. Plus, the sketch made it easy.

My card is Breast Cancer Awareness/Support for this special month.

I pierced and hand stitched the edges with thin jute. The tag that I inked and stamped actually pulls out.

For the corner embellishment I used a pink vintage button from The Brass Armadillo antique store. It's all covered in cream paint. So shabby chic. I added a brown jute bow and a dingleberry left over from the side trim. The post letters are cutout from an embossed piece of Life's Journey K&Co. paper. And of course the decorative stick pin and heart jewelry charm.

I thought the stamp went perfectly with the cute little girls.

Mmmm... Flowers and pearls and romantic trim. My favorite.

Thanks for looking!
